MEMPHIS, TN-- Breezy southwesterly winds have ushered in the unseasonably warm weather today. Clouds have enveloped most of the Mid-South, but the early evening hours on Saturday will be dry. A weak frontal boundary continues to hang near the Mississippi River and will act to drive additional showers overnight. Scattered showers will spread east of the river overnight into Sunday morning. Temperatures will remain mild with lows in the upper 50's and lower 60's.
Sunday will again bring breezy and warm weather to the Mid-South. Temperatures will range from the mid 60's west of the river to mid 70's in northeast Mississippi. The most unstable air will live across the extreme southeastern counties in the Mid-South tomorrow afternoon. After morning showers, the heating of the day could help spark late day storms across northeast Mississippi. The Storm Prediction Center has outlined this small part of the Mid-South in a Slight Risk for severe storms tomorrow.
Slightly cooler and drier air will arrive for the start of the work week. Temperatures will remain unseasonably warm, but no records are expected to be met this week. Our next weather maker will arrive late Wednesday night into early Thursday. This system will bring a nice burst of cooler air to the Mid-South by next Friday.
Have a wonderful weekend!
